Arrow SEL vs SES suspension

I would like to purchase a 2010 or 2011 focus, and I assumed the SES had firmer suspension. On another thread, however, a couple people said the springs are identical. Is this really true? If this were the case, wouldn't the sticker on the door jam show the same spring code for both models? The 2011 SES sedans list the springs code as NNJJ, whereas the SEL lists the springs code as GGHH. What gives?

Below is a list I've compiled so far of the different years 2008-2011, body styles, models, wheels sizes, and their spring codes according to pictures I've seen on websites. Feel free to fill me in on any that I haven't listed.

From what I understand, the S & SE cars have the basic suspension where as the SEL & SES have the sport suspension's. The spring codes cover the differences in weight of the different cars with different options, wheels and sway bars.
